Description (see definition): Mountain, 1,110 m, standing 3 mi S of Mount Cronus in Enderby Land. Plotted from air photos taken by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) in 1956 and 1957. The chart drawn by John Biscoe (1830-31) shows four mountains in what is now named Scott Mountains; these four mountains were named Charles, Henry, Gordon and George, probably for the Enderby Brothers, owners of Biscoe's vessels. It has not been possible to identify the mountain so named by Biscoe, but in order to perpetuate the name ANCA applied it to this feature in 1962.
